The onsite accommodation consists of single hotel rooms and 1 bedroom apartments. The apartments have three single beds. Due to the size of our group, not everyone will be able to be accommodated on site. Anna and Swa will arrange bookings at nearby hotels within walking distance if we exceed the rooms available at Cumberland.

Note: accommodation will only be reserved for registered attendees.

  • ARCCSS Chief Investigators, Partner Investigators and Invited Speakers will be allocated single rooms at Cumberland for three nights (Sun, Mon, Tue). Please contact Anna and Swa if you will NOT require accommodation for any or all of these nights.
  • ARCCSS Postdocs/Research Associates and Associate Investigators will be allocated single rooms at Cumberland or nearby accommodation in the order that workshop registrations are accepted.
  • Students will be allocated the one bedroom apartment. We'll do our best to allocate apartments based on room mate preferences. Anna will coordinate this so please email her groups of three names to share
  • Non-affiliated attendees will need to arrange their own accommodation. Anna and Swa can suggest some nearby hotel options.
  • ECR Event attendees will need to arrange their own accommodation for the extra night. There are plenty of accommodation options in the city which would be convenient.
